Hello Firefox OS Enthusiasts. According To Mozilla, Thousands Of Firefox OS Apps Are Available Via The Firefox Marketplace.
We don’t know for sure if the Firefox Marketplace really contains thousands of apps, but the most important and popular apps running on other mobile platforms are also available for Mozilla’s OS. Among others, worth mentioning are: WhatsApp, Twitter, Wikipedia, SoundCloud, Calculator, Facebook, YouTube, CutTheRope, Chess, Candy Cruch, Explorer, Badoo, QR Scanner and Notes+.
Also, the Mozilla developers have announced that they will provide support to all the third party developers that want to create Firefox OS apps, via StackOverflow.
For those who don’t know yet, Firefox OS is a new Linux based mobile operating system, built by using the new HTML5 technology by the Mozilla developers. For now, it is used as default on smartphones with modest hardware specs, developed by LG, ZTE, Alcatel and Geek. The next Firefox OS based phone will be Huawei Ascend Y300II, which has better hardware specs than all the existing smartphones using Mozilla’s OS. It has been also ported experimentally on the Google Nexus 7 tablet, but there are some apps that don’t work yet.
